    I would just like to point out that myself and other members have been sent cheaper items as replacements as they have stated the item was out of stock.. :rolleyes: I however have been successful in obtaining a full refund from them but still buy with caution. http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/images//pressure_cooker/Pressure-Cooker.jpg
  • melscott28
    i really really need that ds!!!!!!!!!!
  • frogduck
    Sure hope they wouldnt send cheap replacements of those 4 known items :P or that would be a royal ripoff :( I was going to go for the ghd straightener but I'm not so sure I will anymore, should I try? :P
  • lilpretzel
    I would try frogduck and pay via Paypal, I've only known of the smaller priced items to be replaced by an alternative. :)

  • barbee
    I was juuuuuust about to check out and read that the asus is only 2GB - not enough to load on dvds, etc, i think? green looks okay, although they advertised white - weird! LOL
  • lilpretzel
    That's COTD, you have to read the fine print. ;)

    hehe it wouldnt be an authentic catch of the day without server problems :p so i can even play dvds barbee?? ...do you know if it will work if i put in the sd card too?
  • ciciyang
    I saw this advertised on COTD last week but thought I'd read up on it when time gets closer and then I've been sick the past few days so I just have a question. Are they releasing each item per hour, or is it just all coming out one after another as soon as one item sells out?
  • melissanj
    its supose to be every hour but i think the laptop is going for an hour and a half :)
  • ciciyang
    Thanks melissa. :)

    so i can even play dvds barbee?? ...do you know if it will work if i put in the sd card too?
    These netbooks don't have cd/dvd roms only USB ports, with the 512 ram I don't think it would run a dvd movie off a USB memory stick, maybe a avi file.
  • lilpretzel
    Next deal is at 1 PM :)
  • melissanj
    oh dear i didnt even realise lol thatll teach me to impulse buy thanks for the info!
  • Rebekah76
    it does usually have all the info there. like anything - buyer beware. I have bought plenty from COTD and have always been happy. Just make sure you read the product description and you'll be ok. The laptop is only an EEE PC type laptop.. these are usually around $500, so it isw still a fabulous deal as long as you are aware of what you're buying.
  • Keeys
    Just what I wanted golf ball finder sunglasses NOT!!!
  • ozdunker
    those laptops are not worth anywhere near $500.....they are the first model netbooks and barely worth $199
  • melscott28
    my internet just dropped out ( always happens - thanks virgin broadband ) and i always have to restart computer, was really stressing i would miss out on the ds and it was only golf ball finders, joy! This really isnt the site for ppl with stress problems.

    whats reverse payment mean?
    I emailed them and asked if there was a way i could cancel my order ( i paid by paypal direct debit) so i guess it will go through then they will refund it? or maybe they can cancel the paypal payment early.

  • lilpretzel
    I'm sorry, I just don't believe that 200 could had been sold when you can't even get to the front page.. BS... I bet they are loving the hits the site is getting :spiteful:
  • melissanj
    hmm how can the lastcatch :username change 3 times or more after it says sold out :s

  • totalfrog
    There is no way they really sold all those DS's. How could anyone buy one when the site wouldn't even load. I am so over catch of the day - I don't think I will be bothering with them anymore!

    Managed to get into chekout but couldn't get any further when trying to buy the Wii. It's madness
  • melissanj
    hehe tweet tweet :p hmmm i got into the wii page fine..right up to paypal then i resisted...as i already have a wii lol that ds would have been good tho :(
  • melscott28
    i got to press confirm after my pay pal screen for the ds but my computer disconnected while it was working so i got nothing!
  • barbben
    All the good items were sold out for me. I did get onto COTD when the Wii's went on and hit the bite me button and that's the last I saw of the site until I finally got back on to find they had all sold out :mad: As for the GHD and DS the only time I got on was when they had sold out as well. I'm glad I didn't promise my kids I would get them for Christmas pressies. I remember the last one of these days a couple of months ago, I couldn't get a thing that day either.
  • Kotche
    cuddlee for 13 hours, that means end of sale right?
  • melissanj
    it said to expect ds etc and GPS....will the continue tomorrow?
  • frogduck
    hmm it this continuing today? the cuddlee changed into the red XL exerciser and its until midday :O
  • Kotche
    I had to chuckle when I looked on ebay for teh eepc 2g surf to find about 6 on there all using the image from COTD (even with the "green only" image)

What do you think?
